Prince is to be inducted into the Apollo Theatre's Walk of Fame in the US.

Theatre officials have said the late singer - who died on April 21 - will be inducted during the Apollo's annual Spring Gala on June 13.

The fundraising event will be being hosted by LL Cool J and is set to feature performances by the O'Jays, Leon Bridges and Andra Day.

Prince will join previous honorees such as Aretha Franklin and Michael Jackson.

The Apollo's Walk of Fame honorees receive a plaque beneath the theatre's famous marquee in New York City.
